Too many financials missing for an answer; however be aware that a mortgage pre-approval letter is required in order to determine your price range and for any offers to be taken seriously, therefore for a personalized answer visit with any licensed loan officer; don't simpply rely on speculation...

Hi Chaitra,

If you're looking in Brighton your condo fees will be in the $250-$450 range in most cases. If you look in the $425K range your taxes will be around $400/mo give or take. Depending on credit score even a 5% down payment could put you under $3,000. We even offer 3% down programs that will likely have your payment below $3,000. Feel free to give me a call if you have any questions, my office is located on E Broadway in South Boston so I know the local market very well. I hope this helps!

This depends on how much money you are looking to put as a down payment. The amount of the down payment will depend on your credit, your income, and the property itself.
I could help you more if I know more about what you are looking for and where.

Rough guestimate would be around $275,000 - $325,000. As other people have said, many factors...taxes, condo fee, money down, interest rate, credit rating etc etc.

Get in touch with a mortgage broker and determine what your particular circumstances allow. There are a lot of variables that the broker will work through with you. Before you make an offer on a condo you will need to be equipped with a "pre-approval letter" from your lender - without this your offer will go nowhere. I would go so far as to say if your real estate agent proceeds with your offer without a pre-approval letter or proof-of-funds - well, it's time to change real estate agents!

I would say $350,000 depending on what the taxes/HOA dues are.
